‘Red Dead Redemption 2’ Earns Record-Breaking $725 Million Opening Weekend

Adjust Comment Print

Red Dead Redemption 2 is now only available on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, but if files in the game's official companion app are any indication, that could be changing in the future.

Red Dead Redemption 2 had the largest opening weekend for any entertainment product in history, managing to sell through $725 million in copies over just three days.

Some other players have reported HDR issues across all platforms, particularly PlayStation - it appears Rockstar are aware of all of these and are working to fix them.

Although, Rockstar still says Red Dead 2 has the highest-grossing opening weekend, which is technically correct since GTA V was released on a Tuesday - so its $1 billion launch occurred during weekdays.

Most pre-ordered PlayStation game ever.

Biggest first three days full game sales ever on PlayStation Network.

Obviously, a total like that wasn't as hard to reach as it would be for a movie like AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR, with the average ticket costing between $10-15. Every single aspect of the game will put you into the very shoes of an outlaw roaming America with his gang as they try to escape the law long enough to make the money needed to disappear for good.

Rockstar Intel highlighted this particular bit of detective work, peeking inside the files of the Red Dead Redemption 2 companion app and spotting several references to a PC version and related settings. So, with this being the case, the possibility of a virtual reality feature coming to Red Dead Redemption 2 would mark a significant moment in the developer's history, and if it gets implemented, could further establish VR headsets in the mainstream.
